Now serving TrueType fonts to iOS 4.2 devices
January 10, 2011
As noted previously, iOS 4.2 adds support for TrueType fonts, an improvement over previous versions of iOS which only supported SVG fonts. TrueType fonts are superior to SVG fonts in both performance and rendering quality.
We tested TrueType fonts across our system and have been pleased with the results; in particular, the fonts load noticeably faster. Today, we have updated our system to serve TrueType fonts to all iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod) devices. To update your sites to the latest font versions, just republish your kits.
As always, if you have any questions, please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help.
